After the end of the latest Auckland T20I on Sunday (26th January), when the Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal went to have a chat with New Zealand opener Martin Guptill, the Kiwi opener used a Hindi slang on the mic which forced Rohit Sharma to burst into laughter.
The incident took place soon after the culmination of the second game of the five-match T20I series between the hosts New Zealand and the visitors India at Eden Park. They played the first game of this series on last Friday (24th January) where the visitors won by six wickets after successfully chasing the 204-run target in 19 overs (204/4).
Coming back to the second match of this series, the hosts decided to bat first after winning the toss. While they managed to score 48/1 in the powerplay, the Kiwi batsmen struggled then and managed to set the first innings total of 132/5 (20 overs). Openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro scored 33 and 26 runs respectively, and the wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert remained unbeaten on 33 runs.
Among the Indian bowlers, the left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja (2/18) took two wickets while Shardul Thakur (1/21), Jasprit Bumrah (1/21) and Shivam Dube (1/16) also managed to pick up one wicket each.
In reply, India lost their first two wickets quickly and both were the crucial batsmen – Rohit Sharma (8) and Virat Kohli (11).
However, another opener KL Rahul saved the team comfortably with the third-wicket partnership of 86 runs with Shreyas Iyer. While Iyer scored 44 runs, the Player of the Match award winner Rahul remained not out on 57.
Notably, India chased down that target in 17.3 overs after losing just three wickets. With this victory, India have taken the 2-0 lead in this series with three matches to go.
Martin Guptill in Indian mood; Hindi slang saw Rohit Sharma bursting into laughter:
After that match, when the broadcast journalist Jatin Sapru called Yuzvendra Chahal for a chat, Chahal took away the mic and moved where Rohit Sharma was talking with his former Mumbai Indians’ (MI) teammate Guptill. When Chahal asked them what’s up boys, Guptill used the popular Hindi abusive slang and eventually left Rohit in splits.
Chahal quickly controlled that situation and called the Kiwi opener “Gupta ji”.
